42 Dugg Recruits Arabian for New Single “Soon”


“Soon (feat. Arabian)” is the new single by 42 Dugg. The reflective track follows the CMG signee’s collaboration with EST Gee, Last Ones Left, which was released in early April. Dugg set a new career-high as the album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 charts.

The Detroit native’s latest album arrives only one day after his record company, CMG, was named “The Hardest-Working Label in Hip-Hop” on the cover of Billboard. Despite the fact that Dugg was unable to attend the cover shoot, the Billboard cover featured Yo Gotti, the CEO of CMG, as well as labelmates Moneybagg Yo, EST Gee, Mozzy, Blac Youngsta, and Lehla Samia.

Dugg’s first new music release since his incarceration earlier this month, “Soon,” has prompted his CMG family and industry supporters to send #Free42Dugg messages.

The new single may be heard below.

42 Dugg Claimed He Was A Sovereign Citizen Exempt From Federal Laws According To Prosecutors

Earlier this week, 42 Dugg was arrested by federal agents at a Detroit airport after he failed to turn himself in for a sixth-month sentence for firearm possession. The charge comes after Dugg, who is a convicted felon, was seen firing a weapon at an Atlanta gun range back in 2019. As a result, he was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay a $90,000 fine. However, Dugg repeatedly violated the terms of his probation after he allegedly tested positive for drugs on multiple occasions and was arrested in Las Vegas. As a result, a judge sentenced him to six months at a federal prison camp in West Virginia.

According to Detroit News, prosecutors shared that they had been looking for Dugg since April when he was scheduled to turn himself in to the prison camp. Eventually, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives secured a search warrant to track the location of the rapper’s phone, which led to them finding him at the Detroit airport around 4:45 a.m. Wednesday. The next day, prosecutors explained why they believe Dugg is a flight risk during a court hearing about the arrest.

“When he was arrested he had $25,000 in cash and more than $100,000 in jewelry,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Barbara Lanning said during the hearing. “He’s claimed more than $11 million worth of assets. He has access to a private plane with a pilot willing to fly an unnumbered flight where Mr. Hayes is not included on the flight’s manifest.” Lanning concluded, “That’s not an accident. That’s not a happenstance.”

In response to the charges, Dugg’s lawyer told the Detroit News that his client did not turn himself in because they were appealing the six-month sentence. He adds that they mistakenly believed that Dugg did not need to surrender as the appeal was pending. Despite this, prosecutors said Dugg and his teamed filed paperwork in late April that claimed the rapper was a sovereign citizen that was exempt from federal laws. On Thursday, Dugg’s court-appointed lawyer, Casey Swanson, said Dugg did not file the paperwork. “Mr. Hayes did not flee,” she said. “He did not intentionally avoid a sentence in this case.”

42 Dugg is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.

42 Dugg Reacts to Fans Questioning Awkward Video with Son

Rising rap star 42 Dugg has been arrested by federal agents for skipping out on a prison sentence. According to the Detroit News, 42 Dugg was supposed to surrender to authorities for a six-month sentence but never showed.

Last month, 42 Dugg was supposed to report to a West Virginia federal prison camp for illegally possessing a firearm. 42 Dugg reportedly fired the gun in an Atlanta gun range. Now, the “We Paid” rapper is facing an absconding charge. All of the charges can now balloon his sentence from six months to five years. Dugg’s private jet landed the rapper in Detroit from Memphis, he was arrested after the plane’s arrival.

Dugg’s lawyer, Steve Schrag, confirms Dugg was arrested as soon as he stepped off the plane, stating, “He got off the plane and they were waiting there to greet him.”

42 Dugg Was Arrested After Failing To Surrender Himself For Firearm Possession

42 Dugg is one of rap’s fastest-rising stars, but he may see his momentum stall for the next few months — or even years — after being arrested today. The 27-year-old was recently convicted of illegally possessing a firearm (a crime for a convicted felon) and was supposed to report for a six-month sentence last month. Instead, he could have that sentence extended to five years for absconding on his original punishment, according to Detroit News.

Due to a prior conviction on carjacking and felony firearms possession, Dugg’s recent trip to a firing range in Atlanta — where he was seen loading and shooting a Glock 9mm — automatically triggered prison time. Police and federal agents were waiting for him when he got off a private plane from Memphis to Detroit this afternoon.

Incidentally, this isn’t even the first time the “We Paid” rapper was arrested for avoiding the authorities. In August 2020, he was arrested for fleeing a police officer after evading police for two months when he ran a stop sign. He was fitted with an ankle monitor and could be sent to prison for five years on that charge as well. This followed a March 2020 arrest for firearms possession, for which he narrowly avoided prison due to COVID-19.

The timing for his knuckledheadedry catching up to him couldn’t be worse; he just released his joint album with EST Gee last month, accelerating his success and giving him that much further to fall.
